INTRO

Am   G   Bm   F#m x2


VERSE 1

D
I swapped my innocence for pride

A
Crushed the end within my stride

Bm                                     F#m
Said 'I'm strong now I know that I'm a leaver"

D          A             Bm             G  
I love the sound of you walking away, you walking away

D       A                  G       
Mascara bleeds a blackened tear , oh

D                      A
And I am cold, yes I'm cold

F#m
But not as cold as you are

D          A            Bm            G 
I love the sound of you walking away, walking away

F#m
Hey, hey

A
Why don't you walk away?

A
Why don't you walk away?

Bb
Why don't you walk away?


CHORUS

Dm                Bb
No buildings will fall down
Why don't you walk away?

Dm                      Bb
No quake will split the ground
Why don't you walk away?

Dm                       Gm
The sun won't swallow the sky
Why don't you walk away?

Dm               Bb 
Statues will not cry

                         Dm                  A  
Why don't you walk away, why don't you walk away 

                   C     G      A
Why don't you walk away


INTERLUDE

Am   G   Bm   F#m x2


VERSE 2

D    
I cannot turn to see those eyes

A
As apologies may rise

Bm                          F#m
I must be strong and stay an unbeliever

D            A            Bm                   G
And love the sound of you walking away, you walking away

D        A              G
Mascara bleeds into my eye

D                  A                F#m
I'm not cold, I am old, at least as old as you are

D           Bm               D         F#m           
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la

G        
La la la la la la

Bm               F#
La la la la la la la

A
As you walk away

A
As you walk away

Bb
And as you walk away


CHORUS

Dm                     Bb
My headstone crumbles down
As you walk away

Dm                     Bb
The Hollywood wind's a howl
As you walk away

Dm             Gm
The Kremlin's falling
As you walk away

Dm         Bb
Radio 4 is static

Dm               A                     C                G    A
As you walk away, oh as you walk away, as you walk away


END

Am           G
The stab of stiletto

F#m   C#   
On a silent night

Am
Stalin smiles

G
Hitler laughs

Bm
Churchill claps

F#
Mao Tse-Tung on the back
